Le Comte Ory was a complete delight. I had seen it from the back rows of the Met, and wanted to see
this treasure in the more closeup (if not more intimate) setting of the cinema. Loved every moment. . . however,
The Regal Union Square Theater is not a very good place to choose to see HD opera, and this is not the first time I have experienced problems there due to flaws in the sound system and/or management of the sound system.
I worried during the deafening trailers that the opera would be distorted by Avenger-level volume. Sure enough, the overture was a blast. And I do mean that in both senses of the word. The volume was adjusted to barely inaudible for a few minutes -- then readjusted to a better level, but still louder than was appropriate. In the second half, the sound notched way up to a rock concert level, all but ruining a delicate masterwork
